In a recent interview, Glee creator Ryan Murphy has said that he may see a finish line for the show in the near future.
But don’t start the heavy breathing just yet, Gleeks; you aren’t going to hear the last of Rachel Berry any time soon.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Murphy said that the new characters on the show have given a new life and energy to it:
“I’ve really wanted it to go on, and I wanted to populate it with new people. We did that this season, and thankfully those kids have popped. It’s re-energized the show, and I think the actors are all much happier because nobody is having to work eight days a week and kill themselves.”
There had long been rumors that several cast members were unhappy when the scheduling of the show matched with the summer tour giving the principle cast basically no time off.
Murphy even went as far as to say that the set of Glee was “very tumultuous” at times, but noting that the new balance of characters has improved the dynamic.
“So I feel like we finally figured out how to make it work, and I think we could get another four years from this show.”
This is the first time that Ryan Murphy has hinted at a potential series wrap for Glee. With ratings dipping every year and dramatic hiatuses where fans sometimes forget that the show is airing, we wonder if Glee could push through for four more seasons.
Do you think that Glee can last another four years?
